And by lightweight they mean it as the new Razer Viper
is the company's lightest mouse ever - weighing in at 69g. Designed in collaboration with esports professionals, the Viper also features the new Razer Optical Mouse Switches
to go along with the excellent optical 5G sensor seen in recent releases.
The cable itself has also been given a little bit of branding, with it being dubbed the Razer Speedflex Cable - to minimise drag. Though, we assume this simply means the cable will be braided and of a high quality. When it comes to the Optical Mouse Switches, this new bit of tech does away with physical contact and apparently leads to three times the actuation speed.
Lightweight, speedy, definitely something designed for competitive play.
Here's a breakdown of its features.
Razer Optical Mouse Switches for ultra-fast response
Razer 5G Optical Sensor, 16.000 DPI
Up to 450 Inches Per Second (IPS) / 50 G acceleration
69g lightweight design for swifter, controlled swipes
Razer Speedflex Cable for minimal drag and smooth control
Onboard DPI storage for personalised settings wherever you go
Eight Programmable Buttons
“The Razer Viper has been designed ground up in collaboration with some of Team Razer’s best esports athletes”, says Alvin Cheung, Senior Vice President of Razer peripherals. “With Optical Mouse Switches and Razer’s market-leading 5G sensor in an ambidextrous, lightweight mouse, the Viper delivers the high-performance precision and control needed to succeed in any of today’s competitive games.”
We've been seeing a move towards lightweight gaming mice in recent years so this release makes sense. The Razer Viper is available now for AUD $134.95, and you can head here
